Acceptable Use Policy

Last updated: April 19, 2021

Quora is a place that empowers people to share and grow the world's knowledge. We believe if people don't feel safe they can't contribute to knowledge or listen to another person's point of view. The following rules help everyone on Quora have a safe experience:

Be Nice, Be Respectful

Follow Quora's Be Nice, Be Respectful policy (“BNBR”), which includes the following:

Engage with Others in a Constructive Way
Assume everyone on Quora is here to make the platform a great resource with diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and opinions. It is OK to disagree, but please be civil, respectful, and considerate to other posters.

No Hate Speech
Quora is a place for civil discourse and does not tolerate content that attacks or disparages an individual or group based on race, gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity, political group, sexual orientation or another similar characteristic. Any generalizations about these topics should be phrased as neutrally as possible.

No Harassment and Bullying
Abusive behavior directed towards private individuals is not allowed. Repeated and unwanted contact constitutes a form of harassment. Content should not make threats against others or advocate violence, including self-harm.

Respect the Rights of Others

Identity and Deceptive Activity
Your Quora profile should use accurate and truthful credentials and should follow our name policy. Do not use Quora to impersonate another person, act as another entity without authorization, or create multiple accounts with the intention of violating Quora's policies.

Intellectual Property and Personal Rights
Do not post content that infringes any intellectual property or personal right of another party. Writing taken from another source should be properly attributed and block quoted.

Respect the Quora Platform

No Spam
Do not use Quora to post or attract spam.

No Malicious or Illegal Activity
Do not contribute viruses, malware, and other malicious programs or engage in activity that harms or interferes with the operation of Quora or seeks to circumvent security or authentication measures. Do not use Quora to engage in unlawful activity or to promote illegal acts.
Abide by Other Quora Policies
Follow Quora's other policies, which Quora may add or change from time to time.

Reporting Problems

If you see something on Quora that you believe violates our guidelines or policies, please report it to us using the in-product reporting tool, or via our contact form.
Violating the Acceptable Use Policy may result in the removal of content, or in the limitation or termination of a user's access to Quora.
